The Storks of Solvang

We recently visited Solvang with our Swedish relatives.  Many of the rooftops there have life-size wooden storks, replicas of the European white stork.  The Europeans encourage these birds to nest because they believe they bring good luck!  Here's a wonderful article about The Storks of Solvang.

We saw these huge nests on our trip to Sweden last year.
